Because there is no such thing as a traditional release date in music anymore, a clip from Adele's much-ballyhooed theme to Skyfall has leaked to the Internet, and it's ... well, it's an Adele song for a James Bond movie, so it's more or less what you were expecting. It's got shades of Shirley Bassey, which is to say it's sexy, cinematic, and relies on some very dramatic strings. Ask your parents what they think when your aunt forwards them the link in about six to eight weeks.
